Mitchell-Lewis Motor Company was founded in 1900 in Racine, Wisconsin as a motorcycle maker spin-off from the wagon maker Mitchell & Lewis Company Ltd. The company began manufacturing automobiles in 1903. The wagon business and auto companies were combined into Mitchell-Lewis Motor Co. in 1910. The Mitchell car brand produced automobiles from 1903 to 1923.

Mitchell-Lewis Building in Racine

The Mitchell Lewis Building at 815 Eighth Street in Racine was added to the National Register of Historic Places on April 20, 2005. The Racine architectural firm of Guilbert & Funston is credited with designing the building.

The Mitchell House at 905 South Main Street was owned by Henry Mitchell of the Mitchell Wagon works and was designed by Cecil Corwin.

Originally a carriage builder, the company's first model was a 7hp runabout. Nash Motor Company bought Mitchell-Lewis in 1924.

Mitchell offered four-, six- and eight-cylinder models were built. With a factory rated 34 horsepower six cylinder L-head engine that produced an actual output of 50 horsepower and 3-speed gearbox, 1912 Mitchell was one of the best cars of the heralded brass age. The 1920 Model E-40 had a rear-sloping radiator which led to the unfortunate nickname of the "Drunken Mitchell". Sales never recovered, and when the company folded in 1923, Nash Motors bought the factory. The company was known for large, fashionable touring cars.
